Edo Period Japanese woodblock print by Kunisada, also known as Toyokuni III (1786-1864), depicting actors portraying the Heian period samurai Abe no Muneto and a beauty in a scene from kabuki theater. This is one of a number of double half-length portraits of actors designed by Kunisada in 1852. Published by Iseya Kanekichi. Signed at the left "Toyokuni ga" in a red cartouche with yellow snow. Excellent color and impression quality with fine delineation of the hair and wood grain plainly evident in the background. Measures 14 5/8" x 10 1/8", including a small margin at the top and left. The print is not backed and there are no tape stains. There is some faint discoloration on the samurai's hand.
